"At 1:30 p.m. we got good news and bad news: I was 8 centimeters dilated, but the baby was sunny side up. The doctor had me change positions again to try to get the baby to flip. I kept moving into different positions, but our baby stubbornly refused to turn over."
"I was 6 centimeters dilated as we left a very confused nurse behind in the maternity unit (she was speechless when we told her that we planned to birth at home) and walked past wide eyes in the emergency waiting room. I guess no one expects to see a woman in active labour leaving the hospital."
